Shutter Island: enjoyable enough 7/10

Full Metal Jacket: interesting take on Vietnam. Too much competition in this subject though and it’s outdone by Apocalypse Now and Saving Private Ryan 7/10

Ran: Truly epic Japanese take on Shakespeare’s King Lear 9/10

Star Trek Enterprise. It's on Netflix, so I thought I'd watch it through, which I didn't the first time around. I think my cable was cut at the time. Can't really stand Trip. He's just too 'mom and apple pie 'Murican' for me, but T'pol makes me salivate.

Dunkirk: Bored senseless so far. Nolan maintains his 100% strike rate for producing rubbish.
1 hour to go... Kill me.

It's a completely incomprehensible mess.

Every scene is "suspenseful" and to remind us of this we have the shepards tone effect through the entire film. Man goes to toilet, shepards tone in background.... Ooooh, what will happen? Absolutely fn nothing.

LOL It would seem that way.

Still going down the IMDB 250 and these ones just became available in my watching options.

^Nice, I used to drink that one (quite a lot). I still love the shape of the bottle. Which one ain't 'boring' in your opinion?

Good question. Most of the supermarket brands I would classify as boring however there are a few micro brewery's popping up there from time to time.

I tend to buy something new each time to try but it is a risk so when I want to be guaranteed I go for boring (or buy 6 of each to be safe :oops: )

In other words boring isn't boring, it's just been done to death.

Barbarella.

Two comments:
- Man she is hot :hyper:
- I definitely need some acid to watch this. One of trippiest things I've seen for a while.
